Fall Daze

I love fall. I mean, I LOVE fall! love, Love, LOVE! Leaves, fires, cool days, ciders, latte's, crisp skies....ahh!

Today we ventured out to Johnson's Farm to take full advantage of one of our first true fall days. We took in a hayride to the apple orchard and pumpkin patch. We picked pumpkins and gourds. We rode back and went to the farm market where we perused so many goodies, and we also bought so many goodies. Brownies, apple cider doughnuts, fudge, candy corn, and an apple pie all made their way into our hands.

It is days like this that I enjoy more than any other. The days where Finnley gets to experience things outside, all fresh and new in her eyes. She was giddy as she trudged along the path in the pumpkin patch, seemingly all on her own out there. She was in giggle-heaven as her daddy hid behind rows of corn and then popped out to surprise her. She is a little adventurer, and it never ceases to amaze me. Her wonder is my awe.

What a beautiful way to end the week.

I absolutely agree with you! I love Fall is my favorite time of the year and I wish it would last longer than it seems to! I can't wait to take Seraya to her first apple orchard and pumpkin patch! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the last pic!

Thanks, Shazia! Yeah, agreed...I wish that fall would last longer. Maybe we could just shorten summer and winter and make fall the longest season of the year??? That would be nice.

The last pic is my favorite. I just ordered a print of it.
